The light plane that landed in Tiberias early Monday morning did not make an emergency landing, but rather touched down so that the pilot could buy himself a cup of coffee, Israel Police said.

The pilot claimed that he had received authorization to land from the relevant authorities.

The plane landed in a small thicket near a BIG discount store.
